Bed Bugs in Minnesota

Minnesota infestations of bedbugs

Minneapolis man kills his momma, because of BedBugs ?

We report a lot of craziness on the BedBugNewsReports.com, but this is a first. Michael Gallagher [62 y/o] killed his mother Patricia Ann Gallagher [89 y/o] because he was afraid BedBugs would get his mom kicked out of her housing, and she’d have to come live with him.

Like most of the commentary here, we can only work with the “facts” offered up by the local press, but this one is pretty sad. Michael Gallagher has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of his mother. Bail was set at $2 million, so he’s not goin’ anywhere.

Prosecutors say he admitted to killing his mom, because he was upset that a bedbug outbreak would get her kicked out of her home. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner said Momma Gallagher died of “complex homicidal violence.”… which is the technical term for “{getting’ beat over the head with a statue of your son}”.

As sad as this is, [and it’s pretty damn sad], there is some stuff we can learn here….. [besides: #1, If you beat your Momma over the head with a statue of yourself she will die and you will go to prison]

The reality is, awareness of BedBugs will allow you to detect the problem early, and get the older/weaker folks in your life some help. If you have elderly friends or relatives, Check on them, often and look for the signs of BedBugs. […]

Morehead Mn is the latest place where BedBugs, Public Housing and “dumb” makes headlines.

If ever there was a classic news story about BedBugs and the poor response from a public housing administration officials the folks at KVLY-TV /KXJB-TV “Valley LIVE”, the NBC TV station in Moorhead Minnesota /Fargo/Grand Forks, North Dakota have it. We post a LOT of press coverage about BedBugs. We do it so YOU can learn from the mistakes of others…..
WoW ! Today we are going to learn a LOT.

As I always say, we don’t NOT post these articles to point-fingers or make fun of public officials. We only know what is reported [fully or not] by the local newspapers or TV stations. Our goal is to help you understand that BedBugs are different than ants, roaches, ticks, spiders, mosquitos and other household [or public nuisence] pests. Lets take this situation apart, one piece at a time and see what we can learn.

#1 > Moorhead Minnesota residents in the Sharp View Apartments aren’t too happy. Residents have captured and documented over 10 BedBugs.
If you have more than one resident with BedBug complaints, you need to plan for cleaning the infestation of the entire facility. City/Municipal Housing Directors HATE THIS, and don’t want to do it, because it is expensive, but when an infestion is so imbedded [no pun intended] that residents can “catch” BedBugs…There are a LOT OF BEDBUGS.

#2 > We are sorry that the lady missed Thanksgiving with her 100 year old grandmom. Public misunderstanding of BedBugs is common, but […]

Top 50 Most BedBug Infested Cities in the USA

There is a scene in the Steve Martin comedy movie [called “The Jerk”] inwhich the character [Navin R. Johnson] is overly-excited by the arrival of the new phonebook. He thinks he is “somebody”, because his name is in print. The old saying, “any publicity is good publicity” does NOT always apply….. like when the new annual “Top 50 Most BedBug Infested Cities in the USA” list is published.

Contrary to what “Navin” believes [“This is the kind of spontaneous publicity that “makes people”] most Mayors, Chambers of Commerce and City Health Departments would rather NOT be recognized for the inglorious achievement of being on the list, but there they are. Both Orkin and Terminex play this game with PR/news releases as a way to hype the franchise pest control services they sell. The list are not really very scientific, but actually based of the number of service calls received in each city. This introduces reporting variables that have nothing to do with the level of BedBug infestations, but lets allow them to have their “fun” at the expensive of Municipal reputation all across the USA.

Here is the Top 50 Most Bed Bug Infested Cities List [per the newest Orkin press release.]

1. Chicago Il (moving up +1 spot to be the New #1, like Casey Kasum used to say)
2. Detroit MI (up +1)
3. Los Angeles Calif (up +2)
4. Denver Colo (holding steady at #4)
5. Cincinnati Ohio (down the list -4 places, but everyone else in Ohio is “catching-up” fast. )
6. Columbus, Ohio (still ranked #6, but workin’ hard to break that Top 5 goal.) […]
